* In one segment of Literature/WorldWarZ, a mercenary discusses with the author how he met a celebutante's dog and they shot each other looks in the middle of a firefight that conveyed the message, "What about your master?" with the reply being, "What about yours?", and the final reply "Fuck 'em".

* A Season 7 episode of ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' gives us [[https://derpibooru.org/1424871?q=starlight+glimmer%2C+maud+pie one such moment]], where Maud quietly signals to Starlight with her eyes that they should move on before Pinkie Pie can cause any more trouble, a sentiment that Starlight clearly agrees with.

* The Tenth Doctor and Donna Noble of ''Series/DoctorWho'' play this trope for laughs in "Partners in Crime". They are both spying on the episode's villain by looking through adjacent windows, the villain's office between them, and catch each other's eye. A conversation follows using comically exaggerated expressions, lip reading and mime. The conversation ends when Donna gestures to the villain, who, it turns out, has been watching them embarrass themselves and simply asks, "Are we interrupting you?"
** Thanks to Creator/PeterCapaldi and Creator/JennaColeman having very expressive faces, the Doctor and Clara Oswald often engage in this. ''Spectacular'' examples can be found in the episodes "The Caretaker", "Under the Lake" and "Hell Bent."

* Gibbs's functional mute characterization on "Series/{{NCIS}}" partly comes from Mark Harmon choosing to not say his lines during the show's early seasons and react to his co-stars through facial expressions. This turned Gibbs from being merely a gruff authority figure into someone who famously has no patience for the extraneous.
